Lease management/renewal is a different feaure which I call Activation
lease security. The requirements are written:
Ethiopia and Peru have signed off that those requirements meet their
needs and I am tracking it as a top priority for 9.1.0. I plan to run it
by Uruguayan technical leads ASAP.
I mention Ethiopia in regards to initial Activation because they use a
custom image and I know its painful to setup all the XOs via USB in a
Peru, Rwanda, Haiti and essentially all the large deployments will
benefit from this feature, when its available (hopefully 8.2.1 but no
confirmed date yet). That is, if they are willing to put an AP and a
school server in their installation "warehouse".
We still have to tease apart in the "in school activation" case from the
"warehouse" case. My impression is that they are always activated in the
"warehouse" but that needs validation.
FYI, two other related features on the docket for 9.1 are:
in the section:
Those are due for an update (preview: I plan to ask for one click XO
image cloning) and another round of sanity check with engineers and
users. I hope to get to that next week.
